To the rest of my Metro/Chicago brethren just what it means for your town to be Blue Collar: (Beat) IT MEANS YOU'RE BROKE, YOU DUMB SONS OF BITCHES!
It means your city has has no money in it!
And it means your city is going to remain
broke, because they keep clinging on to this dead identity of being a quote-unquote Manufacturing Hub
. Let me tell you what life is like being blue collar: IT SUCKS!
It means getting up at 4AM to be at work at 5AM to get off at lunch, and have to be asleep at dinner. I hate that life, I will never be a part of that life again, and you need to let it. the bloody hell. GO!
